Six Words About Privacy

Share Your Six Words on Privacy

We live in an era of product and service personalization and social media sharing, but also of pervasive data collection, surveillance, and data mining. Knowledge is currency, and data and smart devices are everywhere.

What is privacy? It's a complex construct that means different and sometimes very personal things to different people. It may carry with it legal or professional obligations. It is approached in different ways in different countries and cultures. So is it a state of being? A social value? A set of shared norms? A collection of laws? A basic human right?

Inspired by The Race Card Project, we would like for you to share your thoughts on privacy in six words.

We promise to only share the information you choose to share. We'll keep the rest private.

stop sharing salary and work location

Being a single woman I am concern for my safety I don't tell people where I work that changed when I started at U of M it is easy to search my name where I work how much I make you should have a filter set up so this is not easy to get to.

Don't trust the privacy tools either

Even when you request data not to be collected/tracked and don't give your consent, the tech companies are still collecting it. You don't even have to not use the service.

Must stop sacrificing privacy for convenience!

It's about freedom versus control ​​

Suppose I kept a record of when you left your house, where you went, how many minutes you spent at each place, what you bought along the way, and who you talked to, but not what you said. Is that metadata, or is it surveillance?
Thomas

Self-determination, respect, dignity, consent, choice, control

STOP MAKING PUBLIC MY SALARY INFO

I think that salaries should remain private. In the past, employees talking about how much they make, or how much of an increase they received versus me. There are a lot of factors that are considered when determining salary.

STOP MAKING PUBLIC MY SALARY INFO

I do not see a privacy anything with my salary being made public information through the University. That is unfair because I know that it is not publicly available for everyone. I never agreed to have my salary info posted for internet searches.

Privacy has been monetized and weaponized

regaining privacy is a new pipe dream like clean environment, and world peace

Sometimes, there's no good alternative product

Would love to be able to use a product without giving up my data or move to a different product, but it's not always possible because of how embedded the product is in our society's tech infrastructure and the lack of sufficient support for alternatives.

Privacy is the ability to have agency over one's own information and identity. One gets to choose how/when/where it is used and shared and clearly understand the consequences of doing so in context with the benefits you will receive in return.
Daniel Ayala

Vulnerable to ability, agency, and access

Privacy is like one of those very basic desires - like fairness. But like other basic desires, there is no sharp definition. Context matters, and in that context are: Ability to choose (as modified by health, injury, etc.) Agency to act Access too.
Richard C

Relinquishing privacy is rarely worth it.
